Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe CAFE

Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe is a veteran and family-owned and operated cafe specializing in hand-cut doughnuts baked fresh every day. We serve specialty coffee sourced from direct-trade coffee roaster Intelligentsia. While Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe is technically a startup, it is grounded in the rich history and experience of the Murphy family dating back to the 1960’s and set in a small town in Florida. The original Mr. and Mrs. Murphy, Earl and Shirley, raised their family on a small farm in Connecticut, but the long New England winters took their toll. In 1961 they sold the family home, said goodbye to family and friends, and headed south with no specific plans for the future. They literally packed up their belongings and youngest child and set out on an adventure that they could not have known we would be talking about today. The Murphy’s had no idea where they were headed or what they would do when they got there, but their strong entrepreneurial spirit showed them the way. In 1962, Earl and Shirley opened the original Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts in Jupiter, Florida which, began a legacy of several successful shops that would follow from Florida to Massachusetts, to Vermont, and New Hampshire; all created on the founding core principles of Quality, Community, and Family.

Hillary, December 15, 2019

Great variety of food other than just donuts.

Gretchen, December 15, 2019

Definitely will return. Breakfast sandwich was amazing as were the donuts. seems like all of their food is great!

Hannah, December 14, 2019

I met the owner and heard his story today. I love that he's still showing up and training employees 8 months after the opening. My sandwich was good but not a first choice in Arlington for $10. (I will never spend $4 on a donut when they are $0.79 at Harris Teeter on the next block.) I had my chicken pesto sandwich toasted and think it would have been better had they used 1 slice of cheese instead of 2 and melted the cheese on the toasted bread.

Stephanie, December 13, 2019

Good variety.

Adorable coffee & donut shop. We visited because of the Nift we got, and the donuts were out of this world good! We got coffee and espresso along with a turkey sausage egg and cheese on ciabatta bread. Can’t wait to go back.

Loved the variety of donuts and other food items on the menu. While the name suggests breakfast this is a place you can enjoy all day and night. Beer and cocktail menu lends itself to the menu & donuts. Great local stop.

My husband and I stopped by Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe after a long morning run. We decided to dedicate our Nift Gift to a half-dozen doughnuts. The shop is bright and inviting and the staff, including the owner, were warm and welcoming. We had a couple of questions about doughnuts in order to optimize our picks. The selection was delightfully plentiful as well. The doughnuts were Delicious! We will be back! We'd love to try breakfast as well. Thank you!
